People in the Park

May 2023

Members of the group took part in this event for the second time. The sun shone and there was a respectable interest in our activities. Friendly passers by signed the 40 letters of petition (on behalf of Vladimir Kara Murza)  produced by group member Tony, so that we had to get another 10 printed making 50.

Three people expressed interest in the group and gave emails.

We are pleased to attach a copy of the minutes of the May meeting, thanks to group member Andrew for compiling them. They contain details and links to current activities and concerns including immigration, the current laws being processed through parliament to limit campaigning activity and the forthcoming talk about apartheid in Israel . The People in the Park event took place after the meeting.

Israel apartheid talk

May 2023

Further details of the planned talk on 13th June are available.

Garry Ettle, a prominent human rights activist is coming to speak in Salisbury at the invitation of the Salisbury group of Amnesty International (AI) and Sarum Concern for Israel Palestine (SCIP). The evening meeting is the latest in a long series of events designed to fulfil the request of the residents of Bethlehem to ‘Come and see, go and tell.’

The Nakba 75 commemoration, in May, which included an address by the Dean of Salisbury, filled the Quaker Meeting House to capacity.

Garry Ettle, a committed and highly principled human rights activist has opposed the Israeli authorities’ system of apartheid for years. 

Peter Curbishley, from the AI group based in Salisbury said that the talk would be based on the Amnesty report on the apartheid system in operation against the Palestinians in Israel. The Amnesty report is detailed and follows other reports by B’Tselem and Human Rights Watch on the same subject. There will be an opportunity to ask questions.

  • The talk APARTHEID AGAINST PALESTINIANS? will take place at the United Reformed Church in Fisherton Street, Salisbury on Tuesday 13 June starting at 7:30pm – free with a parting collection.

   Zaytoun Fair Trade produce will be on sale.

The crime against humanity of apartheid is perpetrated when particular serious human rights violations are committed with the purpose of establishing and maintaining’ a system of domination by one racial group…..over another and systematically oppressing them.
